Chamber of the Year Awards

The Chamber of the Year Awards are announced every year at our prestigious annual Awards Dinner. This event is the highlight of the COBCOE calendar, and is a celebration of the prolific talent and achievement within the British bilateral chamber movement across Europe.

Recognising exceptional talent and achievements by member chambers across the COBCOE European network, the Chamber of the Year Awards highlight the innovation, flair, entrepreneurship and sound organisation that our member chambers offer, and the quality of the services they provide.

These awards also recognise the ways in which chambers make a real difference in developing trade and investment and supporting the wellbeing of their local business communities.

From 2015, the Chamber of the Year awards have been based on the COBCOE Quality Standard accreditation programme.
